Mission: To encourage and enable healthy lifestyles throughout the Beach Cities outdoor recreational areas, as well as to promote their public access and respect to the local neighborhoods.

CORE’s Objectives

CORE’s primary objectives are:

  1. Promote awareness and access for physical health and wellness.
  2. Educate the public about current issues and recreational opportunities.
  3. Provide information for each individual to personally engage themselves in the process

While CORE’s initial efforts were focused on the re-opening of the Sand Dune at Sand Dune Park, CORE will continue to promote access and awareness throughout the Beach Cities public recreational areas. With obesity, diabetes, and heart disease at epidemic levels in our community, CORE will continue to encourage public recreational access to combat these alarming trends.
